Your organization perfected a new medical device with broad applications, but your market reach is limited. Or maybe you’ve devised an ingenious solution to a vexing manufacturing problem, but can’t afford the cost of in-house production. Consider licensing. By granting a third party the right, or license, to produce or market your idea, you can gain important exposure in the marketplace and avoid high start-up costs. Patterson Thuente IP attorneys have extensive experience managing intellectual property licensing relationships for both domestic clients and those introducing their idea or product into the U.S. market. We’ll work closely with you to create a comprehensive and sound licensing strategy and follow through every step of the way to ensure that your intellectual property remains protected.
